After some subtle reworking of the front and rear ends in 2017, we expect the 2018 Cadillac CTS to be a carryover without any changes worth noting.
2018 Cadillac CTS Design
As a carryover model, we expect the 2018 CTS to retain the looks of the existing car. Provided its recent refresh, its lack of change should not bore prospective buyers. Inside, we expect it’ll carry on with its stylish-looking cabin, premium materials, and tighter-than-expected rear-seat space and trunk area.
With no modifications to its appearances, we anticipate nothing new in its standard-equipment list. If this shows true, search for the 2018 CTS to continue with its standard 17-inch wheels, Brembo front brakes, automatic headlights, rear parking sensing units, keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone climate control, leatherette upholstery, and cruise control.
2018 Cadillac CTS Engine
We expect no modification in the power behind the 2018 CTS, as it’ll continue with the exact same powertrain options. The base powertrain will include a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that will produce 268 horse power and 295 pound-feet of torque paired with an eight-speed car transmission.
Optionally, buyers will have the ability to pick up the 3.6-liter V6 with 335 hp and 285 lb-feet of torque. Moving into the V-Sport will add a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 with 420 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. Lastly, the CTS-V will gain a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that will inject 640 hp and 630 lb-ft of torque.
2018 Cadillac CTS Safety
The present Cadillac CTS fell simply except the IIHS’ Top Safety Pick score due to its moderate score on the small-front overlap test. The CTS has good scores on each crash test and got a remarkable score in front crash avoidance, thanks to its optional automated front emergency situation braking. This must all remain the exact same in the new model year.
2018 Cadillac CTS Release Date and Price
We anticipate the 2018 CTS to begin production in June 2017. Its on-sale date ought to come around August 2017. The crucial competition or the 2018 Cadillac CTS will include the BMW 5-Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and Lexus GS.
Given that there are no huge modifications, we expect hardly any in regards to cost increases from the present model. For reference, the 2017 CTS begins with $46,990 and peaks at $86,990 (destination fees included).
